Vigneron Landais Expression Rouge 2010, Tursan, France
How’s this for an off the beaten track beauty?
It’s from France’s newest appellation, Tursan, in south west France. The appellation covers a tiny 300ha yielding 16,500 hl - around 2 million bottles of 50% red wines, 40% rosés and 10% whites (to put that in context: Champagne makes some 300 million bottles annually).
The Vigneron Landais is a cooperative comprising 120 grape growers across 520ha of vines.
The Vigneron Landais Expression Rouge 2010 is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Tannat, Cabernet-Sauvignon and Fer Servadou and offers great value for money especially given its considerable bottle age.
